We had the good fortune of connecting with Aina Brei’Yon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Aina, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
The music industry is a very surface level, superficial industry. Your community does not support you until mainstream supports you. Keeping this is mind, it’s no surprise that only the strong minded and highly dedicated creatives achieve success. The most challenging decision one must make when they first jump into this industry is do you be true to yourself or do you follow the current trends. Such a decision can have major impact on one’s mental health. Especially if you do not have genuine people around you.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m well known for my excuse-free, self-rewarding work ethic. As the founder, and CEO of 3K9 Productions I am mastering the art of maintaining a successful career as an Award-Winning Music Producer, Independent Artist, Actress, Author and Entrepreneur. As a native of the Southside (Roseland area) of Chicago, I personify strength. Since my conception, I have made it clear that boundaries do not apply to me. Early in my career, I understood the importance of being true to who I am. My reality is defined by my beliefs; a message that transcends through my music and creative endeavors. As the second to youngest of 10 children, self-expression and showing any type of emotion was simply non-existent in my family. I found an outlet with music at the young age of nine. Writing was the only way I knew how to express myself.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a weeklong trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.I am a huge fan of Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen and Top Golf. When I am in Atlanta, I enjoy the music festivals such as One Music Fest and A3C Festival and Conference.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My Management and Publicist Team, Loyalty Enterprise. My Attorney, Marissa Crespo, and my true supporters. Let’s not forget my ancestors who continue to watch over me day after day.
